Proposal: Even more Overdrive

Timed out. Passes 2-1—Clucky

Amend the rule “Quota” to say

There is a numeric gamestate value called the Quota Factor which starts at 5. Once each at the start of July 22nd 2012, July 25th 2012, July 28th 2012 and July 31st 2012 the Quota Factor increases by one. At the start of August 3rd 2012, the Quota Factor becomes 500.

Each Worker has an amount of Quota, tracked in the GNDT and defaulting to 0. As a daily action, a Worker may add the current Quota Factor to their Quota. If a Worker fails to perform this action during a day, then they may perform it an extra time during any of the following three days.

A Worker cannot have more than five times the current Quota Factor in Quota. If any Worker has more than five times the current Quota Factor in Quota, that Worker’s Quota is reduced to five time the current Quota Factor.

A Worker may not spend more than more than twice the current Quota Factor quota per day.

This essentially lets things ramp up in speed over the next two weeks and basically lets anyone who wants to sit there end the dynasty two weeks from now. Only four of us are really playing, so I think its good to try and end this thing asap.

The 500 thing is stupid because it still requires everyone to sit on the GNDT rolling dice because 500 is not quite large enough for someone to say “I’m 100% confident that I have enough quota to repair all the machines”.

However, that’s a problem we can fix next week—I like the rest of this.

Why not simply amend victory condition so as to allow to declare victory not only when the factory becomes repaired but also after august 3rd… I’m too lazy to sit here :) And then it’s a race: who is the first to get here on the day X
